When __setting up a Billing Account for a Client__, you might need to define **markups **for it.

These can be applied in **3 different ways**:

**Percentage****Fixed value****Both at the same time (additive)**

**The markup (or mark-down, if the value is negative)**is applied when you

**update back to the WMS.**

**the Markup value is added later**.

**NOTE**: You can use **negative values in the markup fields** to **downmark the final value**. For this diagram, if the Fee Markup% value would be -4%, that 10 USD order would reach the WMS with a value of 9.6 USD, calculated as 10*0.96 or 10 - (10*0.04)

**MARKUP FORMULAS**

**Regular Usage**(without taxes included):

Markup = (Carrier charge before tax) * Fee Percent + Fixed Fee

**Added Tax Usage**(with taxes included):

Markup = (Carrier charge after tax)* Fee Percent + Fixed Fee

To **enable Added Tax usage** you must check "Include tax into fee markup calculation"

To **post the markup value even when no rates are returned, **you must check "Force markup when missing carrier charge"

**USING MARKUP IN RATE SHOPPING**

**one exception**to that rule which is if you are

**Rate Shopping**and you have enabled

**this option**, which

**adds the markup WHEN rate shopping**:

**carrier rate + markup**(instead of only the carrier rate)

For example, considering the following scenario:

- You have Carrier 1 with markup 100% and Carrier 2 with markup 50%

**is activated**, Carrier 1 will win, while if not, Carrier 2 will.
